 Orange & LA County Real Estate
January 2015 is here and we hope your new year has been great so far. This time of year is when a lot of homes get taken off the market until the spring selling season rolls around. Right now, we are down about 22% in inventory from last month, and 10% down from this time last year.

What is going to start to happen is while sellers are coming off the market, a lot of buyers will be coming onto it. If you or somebody you know has been looking to move, this is a great market to sell your home in. The lack of inventory will have serious buyers chomping at the bit for a good home. There is a lot less competition to sell against now than there will be in a few months.

Think about it like this: 20 homes on the market for every one buyer is nowhere near as good as 5 homes on the market for every one buyer. Now you are beginning to see why it behooves you to sell your property when you have less competition.

As always, if you have any questions for me, feel free to reach out to me by phone or email. We look forward to hearing from you soon!

Can You Get Top Dollar When You Sell in the Fall?

During the fall and winter months, people typically decide to take their homes off the market and wait until spring to give selling another chance. In a sense, this is understandable, as there are fewer buyers out there than in the spring. What most homeowners don't know, however, is there are more quality buyers in the market at this time.

There are two types of sellers out there: those who are in the market, and those who are out of it. Sellers who are “out of the market” will continue to list their homes during the fall and winter seasons but only at their desired price, which is usually outside the market’s demands. This leads to a “swell of inventory”, with only a small number of buyers who are actually in the market pricing their homes accordingly - they are the ones getting all the showings and offers. This past week, we listed and sold two separate properties, both of which had multiple offers on them, one selling at its full asking price, the other at $5,000 over its asking price. What we're getting at is this: you can meet your selling goals and get your asking price if you know how to list your home at a desirable price for the current market (we can help with that).
 

It's better to price low and generate multiple offers than to overprice and receive no offers. Other agents will tell you to list high and pray, but we know that won't work - you'll be priced out of the market and forced to make a price reduction that will net you less than if you would have priced it right from the start.

There's no need to wait until the spring to sell. There's almost no competition in the market right now and you'll be able to get the price you want in this market. If you wait until spring, you'll have more sellers to compete with and you won't have as many quality buyers out there.

If you're interested in taking advantage of this market, we would love to get you a market analysis and start creating a pricing strategy for your home. We hope to hear from you, and look forward to our conversation being the best of your day!
 

How we helped David sell his home by going above and beyond with our research

"We had excellent results when we worked with Frank. He sold our house very quickly and got us more than we expected. Everything went pretty smoothly! He really went above and beyond in getting comps for us. He went around our neighborhood and even went to some open houses just to see what they had done in comparison to our house so we had more justification of why our house had a better comp. I’ve never seen anyone do that much research so I was really impressed!"
